The Wellcome Trust ‘Projects 4 Translation’ Award

The ‘iTPA P4T Award’ fund aims to encourage:

Inter-disciplinary working to address major challenges in translational research
The translation of basic biological research into the elucidation of disease mechanisms
The translation of new data into the clinical setting and health decision making

Eligible projects could be linked to:

  • BRC themes (advanced radiotherapy; cancer precision medicine; cancer prevention and early detection; dermatology; hearing health; musculoskeletal diseases; respiratory diseases)
  • Other key areas of research strength (cardiovascular, endocrine and metabolic science; cellular and development systems; evolution, systems and genomics; infection, immunity, inflammation and repair; neuroscience and mental health; platform sciences and technologies; population health and ecosystems)
  • Areas from our WT funded researchers
  • Other methods of overcoming research challenges will also be considered.

Applications are particularly encouraged from the area of integrated advanced materials as this is currently an under-represented area for early translational research.

Deadline: none stated but the call mentions funds being awarded before the end of December 2018
